The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. *alone*! The renegade outlaw group known as the Outsiders has journeyed from kingdom to kingdom, conning the innocent out of their few valuables. Will and Halt, his mentor, are ambushed by the cult's deadly assassins when Halt is pierced by a poisoned arrow. Now Will must travel day and night in search of the one person with the power to cure Halt: Malkallam the Sorcerer. Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series. From Booklist Continuing the story line begun in The Kings of Clonmel (2010), book 9 of the Ranger’s Apprentice series sends Halt, Will, and Horace back on the trail of the same vicious, thieving outlaws. When a poisoned arrow takes Halt out of his senses and soon threatens his life, his younger comrades must take the lead to save him and continue their mission. A fine addition to a popular series, this volume sends the three main characters into adventures that they can survive only by relying on one other. Series fans will enjoy the dialogue and camaraderie as much as the action. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan About the Author John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia, hoping to be a writer.
